Chance carriage plates
« on: July 08, 2010, 09:18:49 PM »
I purchased three plates still in the box with the wrapping from a second hand store in the US. The back of the box reads 18th & 19th Century Carriages. W.E. Chance & Co, LTD Smethwick, 40 Birmingham. Does anyone know when they were manufactured? I have searched the internet and have not been able to locate any information on the plates.
Thanks for your help.
Sandy

It's in the book available from that site though: Chance Expressions by David P Encill. Essential to anyone who collects or deals in Chance Glass.  :thup:

Carriages of the 18th and 19th Century
Set of six designs
Introduced 1962, short-lived series made in square and diamond shape

Info courtesy of said book.

What is interesting is that is not the name of the main English company, which was Chance Brothers and Co. Ltd. Hopefully David will pop in. I will nag him if he doesn't. A picture of the back of the box would be good please.

Interesting to compare this listing with the one in the Fashion through the ages set I had a while back: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,20804.0.html which just says Chance Glass (British Made).

The earliest date I have for this series is 1962 and they were still present in a 1969 price list, but not in the 1976 list.
